Regeneration Festival began after four of our young brothers and sisters attempted suicide in just one month. We are here to build a world so beautiful that no one will want to leave it. We believe this is how the world once was for our people and this is how it can be again.

The annual celebration of the young in Taos and around the world is a period of fasting, dancing, singing, praying and playing. Through art we re-connect as a community and take time out of our busy schedule to be fully present for the young. We are praying that they may be healthy and joyful, that they may be in love with this life. That they may be successful and supported in their life's journey. It is a gesture born in the town of Taos, New Mexico, USA, to show to the young that they are cherished and important dreamers of the community. It has since spread across the globe.

In 2012, we started the "Run for the Young" at Taos Pueblo and ended in the town park. We prayed for the health of the next generation by running in their name and having a great time doing it.
